  • Why boot from a SAN? Traditionally, HP ProLiant servers boot operating systems from internal SCSI and IDE storage devices. With the support of external booting with StorageWorks Fibre Channel HBAs and RAID arrays, customers can optionally eliminate server-based internal boot devices. Booting from an external device decreases downtime through faster server replacement in the event of a server failure.

    Booting from the SAN provides:

    • Redundant storage paths • Disaster recovery • Improved security • Minimal server maintenance • Reduced impact on production servers • Reduced backup time

    Additional information For detailed information about HBAs, switches, storage arrays, and storage software, go to the following HP web sites:

  • Supported feature Requirement

    Fibre Channel switches

    B-Series, C-Series, and M-Series switches. See the HP StorageWorks SAN design reference guide for the latest supported switches on the web site http://h18006.www1.hp.com/products/storageworks/san/documentation.html. On M-Series switches, only the entry-level models Edge Switch 2/12 and 2/24 are supported for BL3xp connectivity using Fx ports.

    Note: For BL3xp servers with Emulex-based Fibre Channel Mezzanine HBAs, you must disable the M-Series switch port fan.

    Servers All HP ProLiant servers, including HP ProLiant blade servers, are supported. For detailed information, see http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/servers/platforms/ storage.html. If you are using the Rapid Deployment Pack, see the support matrix for supported servers on the web site http://www.hp.com/servers/rdp.

    Note: There is no support for DL140 and DL145 servers.
